It might still be difficult to travel, but that doesn’t stop us dreaming of our next adventures — and brilliant travel TV and radio shows are ideal for helping us imagine where we’ll go next.
Our Broadcast Programme of the Year award is always a hotly contested category, with big names from national and international broadcasters up against local radio stations, podcasters and websites.
Last year’s winner, the Tokyo Paralympics episode of BBC’s The Travel Show, saw disabled journalist Paul Carter visiting Tokyo ahead of this year’s now-postponed Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. He was on a mission to explore the city’s main tourist sites — from the ancient Sensoji Temple to the futuristic Tokyo Skytree — and discover how to navigate one of the most populated cities in the world as a disabled traveller.
Take some time out to dream of Tokyo and watch the award-winning episode here.
We’ll be announcing the finalists for this year’s Travel Media Awards on 9 November and can’t wait to share the shortlist for the Broadcast Programme of the Year award.
Tickets are on sale now for the Travel Media Awards, taking place on 25 January, here.
